London Restaurant Scene

I was at 'The Ivy' restaurant in town on Friday for a spot of lunch. Apart from being horrified at the price of shepherds pie (£17+) and realising it does look a bit shabby these days (and there wasn't a celebrity to be seen), what really caught my eye was the state of the gentleman's summer attire. I know it's casual dress code but do we have to look like the Americans? I'm sorry but by and large this is the country that style forgot, their mantra being 'as long as it is comfortable'!

To be honest there was an exception of a table of rather 'happy' city types. One was dressed in a beautiful lightweight mid navy suit with an open necked pink fitted shirt, another two with classic blazers and smart open necked shirts....honestly they were a breathe of fresh air and that's saying something for city types!

Gents give us a call. Whatever the dress code, Liz and I will suggest mixing High Street and Bespoke if it is appropriate. Asked nicely we will even do a spot of personal shopping for those timed challenged or clueless, trendy or classic... but oh... do give a care!!!!!!
